[top]Introduction

Hitman: Contracts is the third installment in the Hitman franchise featuring the series protagonist Agent 47. We catch up to 47 on the job after he suffers a gunshot wound, throwing him into shock. Left semi-unconscious, we flash back to pivotal contract assassinations carried out, unfolding everything leading up to this moment. As time passes, law enforcement closes in as 47 is nursed by an Agency doctor. Will 47 be able to finish what he started?






[top]Professional Tips and Strategies


Your goal of any mission is to get is to get to your contracted target and kill him with as little attention to yourself as possible.

- Small things like walking to your objective or learning the paths of your enemy can greatly impact how easy you find it to stay incognito.

- Other things like peeking through the numerous keyholes and shutting the door behind you as you enter a new area can cut out a lot of chances of being caught of guard or attracting witnesses.

- True, you can't always be perfect, so if you need to eliminate a non-target to get to your objective, it's best to do it discreetly. The quietest way to get rid of someone is to use the Fiber Wire (lethal) or the Syringe (non-lethal).

- There will be situations where you need to quickly and quietly dispose of a body that may be found by another enemy. After killing or sedating someone, you should drag then to another area or anywhere that's safely out of view.

- In some missions you'll need to wear a disguise to enter some restricted areas to reach your target. By killing or knocking out someone then taking his clothes, you'll be able to move freely about as long as you don't do anything suspicious, like run around.

- At least for trophy sake, you don't have to be absolutely perfect. As long as you can finish the mission you can always go back on lower difficulties to clean things up. Making a tedious chore of the game is just unhealthy.



[top]Roadmap

1) Normal Playthrough - Here you'll play through the game on the easiest difficulty and achieve Silent Assassin ratings on all 12 missions while familiarizing yourself with each mission. Getting a grasp in the fundamentals shouldn't pose a problem.

(Once you start a game on a particular difficulty, you can not change it.)

2) Weapon & Kill Clean-Up - Simply heading back to grab a few things here and there should take no time at all. By the time you finish the game, you should have amassed a good portion of the game's arsenal. Here you should be getting the rest of the games weapons and all of your specific kill trophies.

2) Professional Playthrough
- Starting a new save on Professional. It isn't really too difficult. Most of the game mechanics are streamlined, most notably the Fiber Wire animations. Unlike other iterations, there are a lot more possibilities and directions to go in finding a good way to take out your target. Being creative is key.

Silent Assassin
A Silent Assassin rating has been awarded

A Silent Assassin rating is the highest achievable rating in any Hitman game. Only the most stealthy and strict gameplay is required here. On each mission you're judged on the following criteria;

- Shots Fired.
- Close Encounters. (Spooked non-enemies or bodies found.)
- Headshots.
- Alerts.
- Enemies Killed.
- Enemies Harmed.
- Innocents Killed.
- Innocents Harmed.
- Difficulty.
- Saves.

From there you will be shown meters based on the play-style.

- Stealth. (More the better.)
- Aggression. (Less the better)
- Ranking.
- Time.

To ensure a Silent Assassin rating you want zeros across the board. There will be exceptions to the case where you will have to use firearms to complete a contract. In those cases having good accuracy and a firearm kill will still produce an Silent Assassin rank.

All Melee Weapons Found
You have found all Melee Weapons

Below is a list of all the melee weapons in the game and where I found them. Unlike the firearms, you cannot collect these in your training room, and better yet you only have to pick them up, though you still have to finish the mission after at least holding them to secure you had it when it saves. The trophy will pop once you've picked up the final weapon.

1st Kill
A successful kill has been performed

Any enemy killed will count toward this trophy, not just your contract target. This is one you'll have a hell of a hard time missing, will definitely come through natural gameplay, and be one of the first trophies you come by in the game.

[top]
47 Kills in a Mission
A mission has been completed with precisely 47 kills

First and foremost, before you begin; grab a tablet or piece of paper to keep a tally of your kills. This way. you can be absolutely sure you've hit the mark of 47 kills. Also save from time to time just in case you get killed or something. That way you won't have to grind forever.

This is best approached after beating the game because you'll have your pick of weapons, but the best mission, I've found, is Asylum Aftermath. There are no contract targets and there is just enough people, enemies and civilians, with plenty of room to run around in if things get a little too crazy.

[top]
Headshot
A successful headshot has been performed

Any enemy killed will count toward this trophy, not just your contract target. Aim right for their head and pull the trigger. For more precise aiming, you can always click in your right stick (R3) to go into 1st person mode. This way you can be in complete control over your shot. Easy as that.

[top]
Killed the Wrong Guy
An innocent person has been killed

Any bystander or non-enemy will count for this trophy. Simpy use any weapon of choice and cut down any civilian you see. You only need one, so you're better off picking someone off early in a mission, then restarting it if you're going for a high mission rating.

[top]
Sleep Well
You knocked a victim out

To knock someone out, you must use the non-lethal Syringe. It's filled with enough fluid to keep an enemy out for the remainder of the mission. Simply sneak up to someone with the Syringe equipped, and use it on them by pressing L2. Once your victim is out cold the trophy will pop.

[top]
Poisonous
You poisoned a victim

Poisoning someone in the Hitman series is one of the quietest ways to take out a target. Whether it be toxic or not, spiking a victims food or drink is a great way to keep things quiet. The example in the spoiler below in the in the mission The Bjarkhov Bomb.

Toggle Spoiler

[top]
Firey Fire
You used explosives on a victim

Explosives of any kind are a double sided sword when it comes to assassinations. True, you are able to take out numerous targets; large and small, but you risk hurting innocent people and obviously making a big scene. The example below is in the mission The Bjarkhov Bomb.

Toggle Spoiler

[top]
Double Eagle
You picked up the Gold Desert Eagle Dual

Using the same technique in for Mini-Gun, the same keycard opens a second locked door a bit later in the Asylum. The locked room is just down a small staircase, with the same flashing red lock mechanism, and is lined with frozen clones.

The Dual Gold Desert Eagles are on the ground as soon as you enter. Pick them up and finish in the mission to keep them in your Training Room.

[top]
Minigun
You picked up the Minigun

The Mini-Gun is a secret weapon in the mission Asylum Aftermath. You can see it being carried by a patient behind a locked glass door on the right, after exiting the bloodied curved hallway. In order to open it, you must finish the game then acquire the "Ort-Meyer's Keycard" in the mission The Wang Fou Incident in Lee Hong's office. Once acquired, finish the mission, then return to Asylum Aftermath and use the keycard to open the door.

Keycard & Mini-Gun Locations

[top]
Floater
You drowned someone

This can be done in the mission Traditions of the Trade. Fritz Fuchs is the second target of that particular mission and he'll make his way into the pool/sauna area on the first floor. Once he makes himself comfortable, he will lay in the pool by his lonesome, protected by a single officer.

Discreetly dispose of the officer and sneak into the pool. Whip out your Fiber Wire and pull Mr. Fuchs underwater. A smell cut scene will play giving you some reassurance to your deed. Once it finishes, this waterlogged trophy will pop.

[top]
Termination
You retrieved the SPAS-12 from the florist

In the seventh mission Traditions of the Trade you'll start out next to the body of the man you knocked out during the beginning cut scene. On him is the ID card you need to pass the entrance security at the hotel. In the same little nook, next to the body is a note from Diana. There's a special delivery for you in the hotel's florist.

From there, make your way past security, talk to the man at the main lobby front desk, and make your way up the left lobby stairs to the second floor. Once you're there, in front of you is a large window and a locked door. You can see your gift from the window, laying on the counter. There are a few cops around the area, so be careful when picking the florist's lock.

Toggle Spoiler


When you've made it inside, pick up your gift and make sure you open it. Now enjoy your new delivery and do whatever you like with it; there's no fate but what you make.

[top]
Ghost Buster
You killed the ghost

In the mission Traditions Of The Trade there is a ghost that is haunting the first floor of the hotel after a gruesome murder.

Once inside the hotel, talk to the man at the main desk, then head down the hallway just to the left of the desk. Behind that door is another door with a sign that states "Hotel Wing Closed". Simply pick the lock and make your way to the end of the hall to where the sign for Room 108 is located. (Room 108 is where the policeman's uniform is located also.)

Here, if you haven't noticed the ghost already, this is where the ghost will pass through the wall and try to elude you.

Toggle Spoiler



Now comes the tricky part. Sometimes the ghost will be completely visible, other times not at all, but he is definitely there taking the same route over and over. I found the best way to catch and kill him, is to just run in the hallway and spam your Fiber Wire in that location. This works all too well because the ghost turns his back to you to walk through the wall which means you can just catch him.

If you don't get him the first time don't worry. Just leave the hallway and wait out side for a few moments and try again. You'll know for sure you killed him; your controller vibration should go a little crazy. Once all is said and done, you did it. You came, you saw, you kicked his ass!
